Royalton’s early run

Chase Locke, of Red Barn Farm in Royalton, Vt., works on the plumbing for a vacuum pump in a new sap collection building in Royalton on Friday evening, Jan. 26, 2024. Locke and his co-worker Nelvin Sical, not pictured, were rushing to finish setting up the station on a newly tapped section of woods to keep up with a sap run. Sap will be pumped from a 5,700 gallon tank in the building more than half a mile to the sugar house to be boiled. (Valley News - James M. Patterson) Copyright Valley News.
